Silva: I’ve already done everything there is to do


Anderson Silva is a perfect 16-0 inside the UFC cage and has defended his middleweight title nine times. His legacy is cemented. What else is left? Nothing according to the man himself:

"Every new fight is a new challenge," he said on Tuesday through an interpreter during a teleconference. "It’s really going to be up to whoever’s better prepared that night. Win or lose, a loser or a winner always walk side by side, so that doesn’t really matter. I've been doing this since I was eight years old. There's always new challenges, there's always new things. My biggest concern is going out there and doing better for myself. I'm not concerned about what my opponents do. I want to better myself and I want to overcome anything that I have."

"I think what’s most important is to set good examples for those kids who watch UFC and the kids that are coming up," he said. "And whatever I should have done in the sport, I've already done. Win or lose, I’ve already done everything there is to do. Now it’s just a matter of doing what I love to do."

At least there was not during much of his reign. Now there is improvement in the division IMO.

I never called any of his competition cans.    There just isn't a lot of high quality on there.

Really I don't think it's fair to bring up that fight in the first place because of the 17:1 T/E.Had AS not pulled off the sub he'd still have the belt. I think it's a poor argument and that the first refutation which I stated above is enough in whole.
